I doubt many developers actually use evolution themselves - I don't really
use it much myself (occassionally as an easier way to manipulate my Palm

I'm monitoring the progress of my latest upload.

Rather, _install_ them correctly. apt is usually smart enough to handle
circular dependencies (it did on all the other archs). There is currently a
new m68k build attempt being done (see
I'll wait for its results. Buildds do have occasional problems that
disappear on retry or minor package upgrades; the problem may prove to have
been transitory.

If it isn't, the real problem seems to be that
/usr/lib/libglade/2.0/libbonobo.so (which depends on libbonoboui2-0) is in
libbonoboui2-common rather than in libbonoboui2-0, creating the circular
dependency. I'll try to fix that once the current m68k evolution build
attempt is done.
